Innovating Private Capital
We believe the future of finance relies on the independent model to bring absolute objectivity, discipline and flexibility for the LP community. Given the significant capital raises done by traditional private equity firms, we view the total amount of ‘dry powder’ across the capital spectrum provides fertile opportunity for an independent sponsor to scale deal vs. return economics.
Our primary and sole mission is to combine global LP reach towards unique industry opportunities where niche economics and operational scale intersect. As a firm, we aim to become the largest independent sponsor firm, applying our investment model towards various industries spanning US and Greater China.
We strive to build a strong LP network that encompasses family offices, traditional private equity firms, private credit funds, etc., to ensure a flexible yet trustworthy capital network to facilitate opportunistic transactions.
